NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. We sell certain of your information to third parties to provide you with offers and promotions and opportunities that may be of interest to you.

Under the CCPA, sale is defined such that it may include allowing third parties to receive certain information, including cookies, IP address, and/or browsing behavior, to deliver targeted advertising on the Services or other services. Advertising, including targeted advertising, enables us to provide you with certain content for free and allows us to provide you offers relevant to you.

Depending on what Services you use, we may provide the following categories of personal information to third parties for these purposes:

  • For online targeted advertising purposes: demographic and statistical information, user-generated content, device information and identifiers, browser and usage data, geolocation, and social media information.
  • For sharing with third parties to send you relevant offers, products, promotions and opportunities: contact and registration information, demographic and statistical information, employment and education data, user-generated content, device information and identifiers, and geolocation.

Opt-Out Tools

To unsubscribe from Search Engine Journal marketing messages, you can adjust your settings here: http://eepurl.com/c1mfS9.

You can also submit a sale opt-out request by emailing us at [email protected]. Please note that we do not knowingly sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age without legally-required affirmative authorization.

If you are a California resident, to opt out of the sale of your personal information (and as a result, opt out of personalized advertising), you must utilize the following toggle (and all 3 tools below).

Do Not Sell My Info


You must utilize each of the following 3 tools (in addition to the toggle above) to ensure that you are opted out as much as technically possible across the open web.

  1. DAA: http://optout.aboutads.info/
    This tool, created by the Digital Advertising Alliance, will generate a list of participating vendors who are currently collecting data from you for the purposes of targeted advertising. You will be able to see each vendor and must then affirmatively opt out of any or all of their databases.
  2. NAI: http://optout.networkadvertising.org/
    This tool, created by the Network Advertising Initiative, will also generate a list of participating vendors who are currently collecting data from you for the purposes of targeted advertising. You will be able to see each vendor and must then affirmatively opt out of any or all of their databases.
  3. LiveIntent: http://d.liadm.com/opt-out
    This tool is specific to LiveIntent, which is a vendor we utilize for advertising within our newsletters.

Full disclosure: For many of these tools, your opt-out preferences may be stored in cookies. If your browser blocks cookies, your opt-out preferences may not be effective. If you delete cookies, you may also be deleting your opt-out preferences, so you should visit these pages periodically to review your preferences or to update your choices. The above opt-out mechanisms are browser based and device specific; thus, you must opt-out on each device and on each browser to exercise your rights. Search Engine Journal does not maintain or control the opt-out mechanisms listed in items 1-3 above and is not responsible for their operation.

Even if you opt-out using any of the above mechanisms, we may still deliver contextual advertising, use information for non-targeted advertising purposes such as analytics, measurement and attribution and conduct cross-device tracking to provide first-party advertisements directly to you. Further, we may also still share some of your information with our service providers to provide services on our behalf, such as fraud prevention, measuring the effectiveness and performance of advertisements, providing analytics and aggregate statistics, and similar services that do not involve the sale of your personal information.

These rights only apply to California residents, and if we reasonably believe that you are not a California resident, you may not exercise these rights.
